    Hi all!

    I just went to listen to Four Corners for the first time in a few years! It was a favourite of mine when I was a teenager and I suddenly remembered about it and had a hankering, however I was pretty sad to discover that it wasn't listed on Apple Music! And neither is Politics. They're old albums, but good ones, and the world should hear them. Is there any way they could be listed on Apple Music?

    I'm really sorry if "streaming services" are a dirty term and I'm actually sticking my foot in my mouth. I have no idea about the commercials, I'm just asking an honest question as a fan.

    Also no offence meant to the current band members who weren't on those albums – I love you guys too!

    Thanks
    Stefan

    I see all of the MCA/GRP albums except Politics and Live Wires available on Qobuz. They do not as yet have the HeadsUp or Mack Ave. albums on Qobuz, although they were in negotiations with a major distributor to start filling in those labels' catalogs. Distribution deals with streaming companies are between them and the record labels or distributors, so the bands and artists have no say in this, unless their contracts with each of the labels prohibits their music appearing on streaming services.

    I was worried that would be the case. And MCA is now defunct, right? I know it's a massive long shot, but I'd be willing to contact the right companies just to at least let them know that the people (i.e. me) want this to happen. Now I don't know who I would reach out to. Thanks for your reply, though.

    MCA, GRP, etc. are all part of Universal Music, aka UMe these days. The only thing to do is complain to your streaming company, or find another streaming company that offers a better selection. Many of the streaming companies have a free trial. My preference is Qobuz (best sound quality by far), but there is also Tidal, Deezer and Spotify. Amazon even has streaming music--it's possible they might have the Jackets' albums available.
